Why Firehouse Subs?

I have a huge weakness for fast food, particularly sub sandwiches. No, I do not love hamburgers or taco joints, but I love the sandwich shops.

Recently, our area had Firehouse Subs move into my general area where I work. Now, I have eaten at them before but there was not a restaurant close by, until now. Firehouse, why did you have to do that? Now I have to visit you at least once a week (crying sniff sniff).

Now, as the name implies, the gentlemen who started Firehouse Subs were once firemen themselves. According to their website, “Growing up in a family that is both entrepreneurial and built on decades of fire and police service, it seems we were destined to start Firehouse Subs®.

Of course, we tried other things along the way to our American Dream – rock ’n’ roll, real estate, and even Christmas tree farming. But everything we experienced on our path led us to Firehouse Subs” (Our Story, nd). 

Fire House Subs Many Sauces

One cool thing is they even have their sauce named after them, Captain Sorensen’s Datil Hot Pepper sauce. How cool is that? Their sauce is also one of my favorites! It is on the mild end of the scale and has a little sweetness to it. You should give it a try next time you are there!

Since we are talking about sauces, we might as well share about all the sauces they have there to choose from. They have, at the end of the ordering counter, countless numbers of hot sauces.

They give them all a range from 1 to 10 with 1 being mild and 10 being the hottest. I mentioned above that Captain Sorensen’s Hot sauce was one of my favorites but another favorite of mine is Gator Hammock Gator sauce. 

This tips the scale around 6 on the hotness but it packs an awesome flavor without being extremely hot. After you order your sandwich, grab your chips, then go pick out a hot sauce to try. You cannot go wrong there!

Ok, let us talk about the sandwich because I know that is what you all want to know about. The sandwiches are so good here.

On this occasion, I ordered the Hook and Ladder sandwich. “The Hook and Ladder has smoked turkey breast, Virginia honey ham, and Melted Monterey Jack served Fully Involved.

What does Fully Involved Mean?

Fully Involved is loaded completely with mayo, deli mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a pickle on the side (, nd).” What makes their subs so good is they toast their bread and steam the meat and cheese in a special machine.

This creates soft bread that doesn’t absorb the moisture from the steamed meat because of the toasting of the bread.

The deli mustard and the steamed meat offer a great combination. It is truly a glorious experience from Firehouse Subs!

While you are there, don’t forget to grab a chocolate chip cookie, they are very good as well.

In concluding our exploration of Firehouse Subs’ Hook and Ladder sandwich, we’ve uncovered the savory details that make it a standout choice. The combination of smoked turkey, Virginia honey ham, and melted Monterey Jack, served Fully Involved, creates a taste sensation that elevates the sandwich experience.

Firehouse Subs, born from a family with a legacy of service, delivers not only on quality but also on a unique array of sauces, including their signature Captain Sorensen’s Datil Hot Pepper sauce. The toasting and steaming process, along with delightful extras like the Gator Hammock Gator sauce, contribute to the glorious experience that is Firehouse Subs. Whether you’re a regular or a first-time visitor, this sandwich haven is sure to leave you craving more.
